Strong, supple left bank claret. I got a case of this as futures, sight unseen (I was feeling flush). I finally dared to open a bottle in 2005, and was surprised at how young it tasted - a mouthful of blackberries and bright, red fruit. Since then it's gotten better & better - I have about 6 bottles left, and I hope to enjoy the last one after 2010.
Have had 2 bottles tonite for dinner with two other people. We all loved this bottle, and look forward to the last 2 that we have in the wine cellar. We had pork loin and pasta in garlic/oil. Have a nice week.
I have 1 bottle from a small stash I am proud to have of a few select. I am happy to read the above review....I will hold on to it a bit longer. Don't want to rush it. Good rating by W. Spectator and worth the patience, I suspect. Thanks for the site.
